Strumble Head & Tresinwen (29 Sep 13)

Well it was blowing Easterly all night with cloud and occasional showers - excellent migrant weather?

Tough going again today!  Area covered today was Tresinwen down Porthsychan around to the lighthouse and back to Tresinwen.

A notable increase in Meadow Pipit numbers with quite a large number in the fields above the lookout car-park.  Couldn't find anything unusual with them but worth keeping an eye on.

Other birds seen were 2 Golden Plovers (gave me a run around all day but finally pinned down late afternoon).  3 Chiffchaffs, 2 Goldcrest, 1 Grey Wagtail.

Of interest when I was on the coast path by the old lookout I was overtaken by an active roving flock of Blue Tits.  Quite a strange place to find them.  About 20 birds and seemed to be going places.

Got a funny feeling we may start getting migrants tomorrow when I am back at work.......
